Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological evaluation (three trial-trenches) and monitoring was carried out at 23 Creffield Road, Colchester, Essex as part of the redevelopment of the site. Located to the south-west of the Roman walled town, the development site is located in an area of known Roman burials and close to where Roman buildings, roads, quarry pits, ovens and burials have recently been excavated. Evaluation and monitoring revealed a significant depth of dark earth covering the site from backfilled Roman sand quarry pits.
